Research is critical to the mission of The Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute (PHLBI). Without the philanthropic support of individuals who care, PHLBI’s unique ability to develop new treatment approaches would be impossible.
The exploration of innovative ideas is at the heart of PHLBI’s unique research program and provides the promise of future treatment breakthroughs. Please consider making a generous contribution to one of the sponsorship programs that works best for you.

Basic Funding Needs:
PHLBI has “ongoing” maintenance expenses to continue its unique service to research . lease costs, personnel for research and administration (ED, banking, accounting, etc.) all require funding on an ongoing basis.
Many employers match charitable contributions given by their employees. Find out from your Human Resources Department about your company’s matching gift policy. If your company does participate, obtain a matching gift form and send the completed form, along with your contribution to PHLBI. Your company will send the matching gift once it has been verified by PHLBI.
Matching Employee Funds:
Find out if your employee provides a vehicle for tax-deductible charitable contributions through payroll deductions. If they do, they often will match your contribution dollar for dollar. PHLBI is willing to make a presentation to employee groups to inform them of this opportunity.
Wills and Bequests:
Helping to fund the fight against mesothelioma using wills and bequests is a memorable and dignified way to honor those who have succumbed to this disease. The benefactor may be an individual diagnosed with mesothelioma, or a bequest in memory of one. Perhaps you, too, can consider leaving a bequest to PHLBI. You do not have to be wealthy to leave a significant gift to PHLBI. And significant estate planning benefits may apply. Your planned gift can be in the form of any of the following assets:
- Wills and bequests
- Life insurance
- Real Estate
- Stocks & Shares
By making a planned gift you may be able to:
- Stretch your philanthropic dollar
- See significant tax savings
- Give stocks or real estate at significantly less cost than a cash gift
- Ensure your legacy in the fight against mesothelioma
